Statements from voice actors about early concepts for non-canon material don't have any authority to retcon the already established lore. Per both the novel and script, Starkiller legitimately defeated Vader, and the latter was going all out.

Vader managing to successfully TK an emotionally unbalanced and exhausted Starkiller doesn't make him superior given that he was unable to follow up on this momentary advantage. Starkiller has already displayed that he can duel evenly with Vader and defeat him, even while exhausted, in both The Cloning Tower and the final section of the fight. Furthermore, if we look at the feats of a non-exhausted Starkiller, he's clearly vastly beyond Vader:

(1) He stomped Vader at the end of TFU after his emotional revelation - pushing him onto the back foot, striking him repeatedly in a short period of time, and Telekinetically dominating him - and Vader is confirmed as not growing much between the games.

(2) He pulverised the army of Starkiller Clones who could have "easily overpowered" Vader.

(3) He mitigated the effects of Sheev's Lightning for 30 seconds.

Again, Starkiller was exhausted. And how does this indicate superiority, exactly? Being able to mitigate most of Starkiller's Force attacks only proves he's comparable, as he's clearly not capable of setting up a totally impenetrable defence, per your own quote. How on earth is he superior if Starkiller can breach his guard with Force attacks?

I know they aren't definitive Canon, but they portray the relative idea that SK was out of his depth.  But since TFU 3 never got released I guess it doesn't matter.

SK only legitimately defeated Vader in TFU 1, where Vader was all out.

Furthermore, if we look at the feats of a non-exhausted Starkiller, he's clearly vastly beyond Vader:

Lol SK wasn't exhausted.  And if you want to play the mentally hindered game I can just as easily say Vader wasn't going all out; since he wasn't.

(1) He stomped Vader at the end of TFU after his emotional revelation - pushing him onto the back foot, striking him repeatedly in a short period of time, and Telekinetically dominating him - and Vader is confirmed as not growing much between the games.

Irrelevant, hence why I excluded TFU 1 Vader.

(2) He pulverised the army of Starkiller Clones who could have "easily overpowered" Vader.

By his own opinion they could have easily overpowered Vader, not a solid foundation to stand on the belief of in Universe characters who are more often than not: wrong.

(3) He mitigated the effects of Sheev's Lightning for 30 seconds.

You mean the toying Sheev at the end of TFU?  The same Sheev that tanked his oneness blast??

Again, Starkiller was exhausted. And how does this indicate superiority, exactly? Being able to mitigate most of Starkiller's Force attacks only proves he's comparable, as he's clearly not capable of setting up a totally impenetrable defence, per your own quote.

Starkiller wasn't exhausted, and Vader rendering SK's attacks "useless" when he felt so puts him definitively above SK.

Furthermore, the idea that Vader couldn't set up an impenetrable defense can be attributed to the fact that he wasn't exactly invested in the fight per the novel.  But when Vader felt like applying his power/knowledge he was capable of mitigating all of SK's attacks, essentially making his defence impenetrable whenever he pleased.

How on earth is he superior if Starkiller can breach his guard with Force attacks?

How on Earth is Starkiller superior if he can be tossed around by Vader?

The quote portrays an idea that was never shown in continuity, and actually outright contradicted. So, yes, it doesn't matter.

Lol SK wasn't exhausted.

Uh-huh...

The Force Unleashed Novelization wrote:He maintained a defensive pose, breathing rhythmically and deeply, regaining his strength. The tips of his lightsabers shook. He had never felt so exhausted, at every level of his being.

This is right before the fight, and "never felt so exhausted" includes an instance where SK almost fully dissipated his reserves from surviving solely off the force for 13 days, meaning he's incredibly weakened while fighting Vader. Also, note that while the quote says SK was "regaining his strength" this doesn't mean he had even close to fully restored, as it typically takes Force Users several days to recover in such scenarios - so SK at best recovered a microbial fraction of his power.

And if you want to play the mentally hindered game I can just as easily say Vader wasn't going all out; since he wasn't.

About that...

The Force Unleashed II wrote:They fought like the Sith Lords of old, raging back and forth across the roof of the spire, uncaring what happened around them. Starkiller maintained his efforts to get to Juno, and Darth Vader did everything in his power to stop him.

Vader, per the novelization, used "everything in his power" to try and stop Starkiller, so he clearly was going all out. Furthermore:

The Force Unleashed II Script wrote:We were adamant that though he might be defeated in combat, Vader is never completely vanquished. Even here, he is a proud warrior, perhaps secretly hoping that Starkiller will deliver a killing blow.

The TFU 2 Script directly refutes the idea that Vader was cutting back his power/feigning weakness relative to Starkiller - it acknowledges he was legitimately defeated.

Irrelevant, hence why I excluded TFU 1 Vader.

The text for TFU 2 notes that Starkiller "knew the measure" of Vader based on their fight in TFU indicating that Vader didn't grow much in between the two games. So, yes, it is relevant.

By his own opinion they could have easily overpowered Vader, not a solid foundation to stand on the belief of in Universe characters who are more often than not: wrong.

Why is Starkiller wrong? He experiences Vader's power first hand at the start of the game (when he battles Vader with Force Lightning and watches Vader try to pull his TIE Fighter back with Telekinesis), so it's not as if he has an inaccurate gauge of his master's power, and I can't see a reason why he would be biased. Appealing to an unestablished trend among IU character opinions isn't an actual argument - it's just an assertion - and doesn't account for the specifics of this situation.

You mean the toying Sheev at the end of TFU?
 
Citation needed for Sheev toying, because the novelization clearly indicates otherwise when it states he's in "desperation". Furthermore, why would Sidious be toying when:

-Starkiller has refused to embrace the Dark Side, which when Luke did so resulted in The Emperor torturing him.
-Starkiller is defending Kota and the rebels from Sheev, and if they escape they'll form an alliance against him.
-Starkiller closes the distance between them and electrocutes Sheev with his own Lightning.

The same Sheev that tanked his oneness blast??

Sheev tanked a small fraction of the blast's potency. Given that he was in front of Galen and the blast spread out in all directions, the majority of the energy presumably didn't touch him.

Vader rendering SK's attacks "useless" when he felt so puts him definitively above SK.

Re-stating your initial claim doesn't actually prove it's true. Why does Vader defending against SK's Force attacks make him stronger?

Furthermore, the idea that Vader couldn't set up an impenetrable defense can be attributed to the fact that he wasn't exactly invested in the fight per the novel. But when Vader felt like applying his power/knowledge he was capable of mitigating all of SK's attacks, essentially making his defence impenetrable whenever he pleased.

Citation needed for Vader not being invested.

You missed also one of my claims - a rather important one at that - so, please, do me the courtesy of addressing it next time round:

There certainly is a point to it given the surrounding context of the fight - it isn't nearly as definitive as you're making out. I can understand thinking Vader wins, but saying there's no value in discussing the outcome is cringe.

Why are we using exhaustion as some sort of an excuse as to why Starkiller couldn't stomp Vader? This argument has no legs.
When did exhaustion ever fail Dooku when he equalled Yoda in AOTC? When did exhaustion fail Kenobi badly when he managed to solo both Maul and Opress on Florrum?

Also The Clones could have overpowered Vader quote isn't reliable for 2 reasons.

As others have pointed out, it's just Starkiller's opinion so it holds no canonicity. If you think character opinion's hold weight, then lets take Feris Olin's opinion of Vader being faster than ROTS Kenobi as canon now. Or lets take Bane's opinion of Kas'im being a GOAT duelist seriously.

And 2nd, the ability to overpower someone does not necessarily mean they would win in a duel.
Lets look at this example.

https://youtu.be/eQATBFIZ13o?t=156
Here Anakin was able to overpower Dooku, and then what happens?
https://youtu.be/eQATBFIZ13o?t=164
Dooku stuns Anakin with force lightning and then sends a powerful force push back at him, still reaffirming that Dooku is>TCW Anakin.
So just because the Starkiller Clones could "easily overpower" Vader, does not mean that Vader would not find a way to net a win by use of his force abilities.

AA3 seems to be under the assumption that the quote means that a pack of Starkiller Clones are>>>>>>Vader when there is little to support this.
And given Vader's restricted movement and fighting style, it would make sense for him to have a harder time fighting the Clones in comparison to the Starkiller who is in a lot better physical condition, and with his two lightsabers, he is more suited in dealing with multiple oponents unlike Vader.
Even then none of this means that Vader wouldn't just proceed to use his force abilities to stomp the clones himself.

So in short, even if the quote is canon, it still lacks context. Starkiller thinks his clones could overpower Vader. That doesn't mean he thinks the Clones could stomp Vader or let alone win against him. In the end that's just your interpretation which is backed up by nothing other than to wank Starkiller.

And lets not forget that Starkiller hasn't seen Vader engage in a duel with these Clones, so how the hell can his opinion be trusted in the first place?

Where do you hold SK as a force user? KFV level? Dooku level??

He's Dooku level overall, imo. Above in raw power, but he lacks the Mastery and duelling skill necessary to be able to decisively beat Dooku (he'd still win, but it'd be really close).
